Anne May and John Paul had a son, John Joseph Sherber born April 22, 1930 in
Antigonish, Nova Scotia. My father was placed in the Good Shepard orphanage in N.S. before going
to live with Anne's parents.
John Paul is said to have been born, October 1906 in Boston MA, and my father was
told John passed away at age 25 of TB or pneumonia while living in Nahant, MA.
My father would have been 2 years old at that time. It is not known if Anne resided with him at any time.
Searches with the Vital Statistics Department of Massachusetts with the very little information
we know has failed to turn up a Birth or Death Certificate on him at this time.
Someone in John's family was said to have owned, managed or worked at a shoe/boot store/factory.
John's parents are said to have immigrated to the US through Naples, Italy and spoke very
little or no English. It was said that John's family may have been opposed to a marriage to Anne
due to their young age and Anne not being a US citizen. If this is the case it would explain why we have
found no Marriage record.
Several years after returning to Canada, Anne married a gentleman named Philip Peter Currie
b: Nov 11, 1905, d: 1960, buried at St. Peters Cemetery, Sheet Harbor Row 22.
(date & location of marriage unknown).
Anne May (Chisholm) Currie passed away May 14, 1987 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Her burial site is in the Gates of Heaven Cemetery, Halifax, Nova Scotia.
JOHN JOSEPH SHERBER
THE INFORMATION LISTED BELOW IS ALL WE HAVE GATHERED SO FAR ON
OUR LINE, THIS PAGE WILL BE UPDATED AS WE FIND OUT MORE.
We were contacted by Mrs. Joseph Sherber living in Florida who
believes that my grandfather, John Paul Sherber is or rather was
the Uncle of her late husband Joseph Anthony Paul Sherber,
b: Apr. 14, 1939 in Nahant, MA and passed away at age 26 on Nov. 18, 1965 in
North Miami Beach, FL of a congenital heart defect.
Joseph’s parents were Nathan and Myrtle V. (Smith) Sherber. Nathan
b: Dec. 24, 1903, and lived in Hathorne, MA, d: May of 1972.
Myrtle b: 1913, d: 1990 in Miami, FL. Nathan & Myrtle had three children,
Joseph A, (deceased), Ray D, (in Hollywood, FL), and Natalie, (in Miami area).
She told us that the original spelling of her husband's surname was
changed from "Sciaba" to "Sherber". The family originate from Italy.
Mrs. Sherber told us that to the best of her recollection Grandma Sciaba
arrived in the United States through Ellis Island right before Mussolini took
over Italy. She believes they all settled in the Nahant, MA area. She states that we
do not have the right death information on John Paul as she believes he passed away in 1985/6.
She mentions an Aunt named Theresa that was a Mother Superior in MA. She
also notes that Nathan Sherber became ill in North Miami Beach, FL and his
brothers moved him to a nursing home in MA so they could be close to him.
She mentions meeting a Dominick while visiting in Malden, MA back in the 60's
She says that she and Joseph did not have a lot of contact with Joseph's family
because they lived so far away.
When searching the 1940 census records we found:
John P Sciaba head of household, Grace, wife, Paul A, son.
Joseph J. Sherber head of household, Agnus M, wife, Ann, daughter Mary P, daughter, Paul J, son, Margaret, daughter,
Helen V, daughter, Geraldine, daughter, Marylyn, daughter & Joseph, son.
Paul Sherber head of household, Nancy, wife, Anthony J, son, and a John Lane, lodger/renter, all 3 families
residing at the 155 - Nahant Rd address.
Nathan J. Sherber head of household Mrytle V, wife, Ray D, son, Natalie N, daughter and Joseph A, son, residing
at 157 - Nahant Rd, MA. This family of Sherber's are Mrs. Sherber's (from Florida), late husband's family.
We believe if these 5 families lived next door to each other that they must all be related to the same Sherber / Sciaba family.
Here is the information that was sent to us about my grandfather's family.
His parents were:
Paolo / Paul Sciaba B: 1872 in Sicily Italy, Immigrated to the US in 1897, D: 1943 in MA and was a Barber.
Paolo married Nunzia / Nancy (Fava) in Boston 1901, she was B: 1881 in Sicily Italy, Immigrated to the US in
1895, D: 1958 in MA. Paolo and Nunzia are interred together at the Greenlawn Cemetery in Nahant, MA.
(Paolo's parents were, Domenico Sciaba & Felicia (Aleese) of Italy).
Their children were:
Domenico (Domenick) Sciaba
